REDUCED | CHILD PROSTITUTION (DCAC) DISMISSED/LURING a MINOR REDUCED to probation with 1 year jail – State v. Mr. S. (DMC No. 4599) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2004-009084): Mr. S. had gone online into a “chat room”, and made contact with what he thought was a 14 year old girl. In reality it was an undercover Detective. He asked the female to prove that she was only 14 by sending a photograph. The Detective sent a photograph of herself when she was 14. They arranged to meet at a Carl’s Jr. in order to have sex in exchange for $100. When he arrived at the Carl’s Jr., he was immediately arrested and, when questioned, he admitted that he had gone there planning to pay to have sex with what he thought was a 14 year old girl. Because Mr. S. was medically disabled, and had mental issues, we were able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the charge of child prostitution (which carried a sentence of 13 to 27 years of prison), and to reduce the charge of luring a minor down to probation with 1 year in jail, and the ability to apply for Interstate Compact, so he could move out of Arizona after he completed his jail time.
